I just checked USCO and if the movie you're talking about was made in '65, there is a renewal notice, so if it does show up here, it won't stay here for long. As far as IA getting it, the movies here are uploaded by people like YOU and me. If you have any movies you'd like to put up here, you can ask if it's PD here on the forum, or you can check it out at the USCO (United States Copyright Office) website. It's pretty easy to use, and since I discovered it the other night, I bookmarked it. Give it a try.

Guyzilla, the film you looked up was not made in 1965. IA has the trailer for it(take a look at it). Thank you looking all the same.

I just checked it again. There were about 19 results from my search, the earliest being 1965. That was a film and most of the others were episodes of various tv shows. If your movie was made before '65, then it would likely be PD since I found no results of anything before then. I hope that was helpful.

OK. 1947. Should be PD. Found no results that old.

According to this:

searching the U.S. Copyright Office website only works for films made between 1950 and 1963.

Are there any other sources on the web besides USCO where you could look up this info?
